However, I've had one heck of a morning and I 38 00:02:19.800 --> 00:02:23.159 just have to share about it because I almost didn't do the show today. 39 00:02:23.199 --> 00:02:25.439 Almost didn't do the episode. I texted I said, look, I've had 40 00:02:25.479 --> 00:02:30.360 a long day. My car got broken into last night and I might not 41 00:02:30.400 --> 00:02:34.080 do the show and the story is crazy. So I clean. So I'm 42 00:02:34.120 --> 00:02:36.599 getting ready to move. For everybody who doesn't know this, I'm getting ready 43 00:02:36.840 --> 00:02:38.560 not like I said every single D I've been saying it for like three months, 44 00:02:38.560 --> 00:02:43.360 like the Preparatina move back North Carolina from Puerto Rico. Here we go. 45 00:02:44.199 --> 00:02:49.439 So been preparing to move. I end this s six model Montero. 46 00:02:49.520 --> 00:02:53.919 It's a it's a piece of work, it's a nice hunk and in anyway, 47 00:02:53.000 --> 00:02:57.400 I clean it up real nice. Spend couple hours on it yesterday getting 48 00:02:57.439 --> 00:03:00.639 it Spiffy, getting a shiny, doing the thing. I put some facebook 49 00:03:00.719 --> 00:03:04.520 market place and I just park it in front of my house, as I've 50 00:03:04.599 --> 00:03:07.120 been doing for ten months. And I wake up this morning and we took 51 00:03:07.159 --> 00:03:10.719 the car seat out to clean it for our son and then we're putting back 52 00:03:10.759 --> 00:03:15.159 in, carry the car seat out there. I open the front door and 53 00:03:15.199 --> 00:03:19.039 the first thing I noticed is the glove compartments wide open and I'm like that 54 00:03:19.120 --> 00:03:22.240 is weird because that glove compartment normally doesn't even come open. It's such a 55 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:25.199 be scrap. It won't come open without the key as someone. How did 56 00:03:25.199 --> 00:03:29.080 that get open? And then I look in the middle console, right in 57 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:32.520 the middle area in the radio, the Stereo is just gone. It's just 58 00:03:32.599 --> 00:03:36.719 like it's just gone, and I'm like, Oh, what the heck? 59 00:03:36.840 --> 00:03:38.719 And then I look in the back of the car. All of our snorkel 60 00:03:38.800 --> 00:03:43.080 stuff is gone, all of our beat stuff is gone, our chairs or 61 00:03:43.159 --> 00:03:46.439 gone, like the whole like whoever you know this cleaned us out, and 62 00:03:46.599 --> 00:03:53.240 so I'm kind of freaking out. I'm kind of freaking out like what is 63 00:03:53.280 --> 00:03:54.240 that? You know, like what do I do? So I call my 64 00:03:54.319 --> 00:03:58.520 landlord, because I don't speak Spanish, so it's not going to call on 65 00:03:58.759 --> 00:04:00.400 one, and so I call my landlord I'm like hey, man, like, 66 00:04:00.520 --> 00:04:02.919 can you help me out here? Can you call somebody, get him 67 00:04:02.919 --> 00:04:06.039 over here? So he's like cool, so he calls the COPS Courses Puerto 68 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:10.879 Rico. So it's like two hours later they show up and they're basically like 69 00:04:10.919 --> 00:04:13.639 hey, we can't do anything for you, you know, because if you 70 00:04:13.639 --> 00:04:16.680 follow a report, even if we pull cameras from certain buildings, cross the 71 00:04:16.680 --> 00:04:19.800 street or whatever, you know you're just not going to be here. It's 72 00:04:19.800 --> 00:04:23.279 like it's going to take a long time to get this person, you know, 73 00:04:23.360 --> 00:04:26.399 can be here to press charges, chopped court all that. So I'm 74 00:04:26.439 --> 00:04:28.839 like all right, I'll chalk it up. Nobody deal.

Actually, she shouting you out. 169 00:10:18.080 --> 00:10:22.720 I told her about the show, I told her about the shout out and 170 00:10:22.759 --> 00:10:26.600 I reminded her this was the same show that that man he was on earlier 171 00:10:26.639 --> 00:10:30.279 than way. She goes, Oh, yeah, I know billy and past, 172 00:10:30.320 --> 00:10:31.000 but I really don't like that show. Shits, I'm not going to 173 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:37.320 come. So, oh, what's she said? That's not what he said. 174 00:10:37.639 --> 00:10:41.440 Why? You know what? That's why. When I try to call 175 00:10:41.480 --> 00:10:46.159 her the other day, all I got was this. So she just didn't 176 00:10:46.519 --> 00:10:50.240 didn't like my phone call. Okay, whatever. She's like smart people. 177 00:10:50.399 --> 00:10:54.080 Took you off of her list. HMM, all right, well, you 178 00:10:54.120 --> 00:10:56.799 know what, speaking of many Cambo, I got it. I get a 179 00:10:56.799 --> 00:11:01.759 little take this. Every Friday we do a little a little highlight of stuff 180 00:11:01.799 --> 00:11:03.159 that people said this week. That resume with. So I'm going to play 181 00:11:03.159 --> 00:11:11.519 this little video will be right back and usually takes, you know, six 182 00:11:11.559 --> 00:11:16.600 months to a year to reap any pup rewards. A probise. People quit 183 00:11:16.799 --> 00:11:20.080 way before that and it gave between music for a long time. So I'm 184 00:11:20.120 --> 00:11:26.320 doing something that most musicians never do. I'm releasing a single every six weeks. 185 00:11:26.320 --> 00:11:30.240 Eighteen years ago, none of this existed. Yeah, it's become such 186 00:11:30.279 --> 00:11:35.240 a part of our lives in less than two decades that I mean, like 187 00:11:35.480 --> 00:11:37.000 for Kring, a lot. I remember very, very first cell phone, 188 00:11:37.080 --> 00:11:41.120 like the one the Zach Morris saved by the Bell, you know, giant 189 00:11:41.120 --> 00:11:43.240 brick. That was our first cell phone, and now we're walking around with 190 00:11:43.320 --> 00:11:50.600 computers in our back pockets. You have no idea what impact you have on 191 00:11:50.679 --> 00:11:54.720 somebody else's life. Well, and I think after the last time I heard 192 00:11:54.759 --> 00:12:00.000 that was not that long before the pandemic and I got introduced to this lady 193 00:12:00.039 --> 00:12:01.799 that she had her three kids and her husband and you know she was. 194 00:12:03.080 --> 00:12:07.600 She gave me a similar style story just from listening to our show or whatever, 195 00:12:07.919 --> 00:12:11.120 or that, you know, it basically change her trajectory. I was 196 00:12:11.159 --> 00:12:13.080 like, yeah, I got it, I could do this as a thing. 197 00:12:13.159 --> 00:12:18.399 Like I got to make sure that I am trying to just positively impact 198 00:12:18.440 --> 00:12:20.840 the lives of people, and so that's that's it. Like just try to 199 00:12:20.840 --> 00:12:24.120 get people to tell this story and you be surprised. You just never know 200 00:12:24.279 --> 00:12:30.120 favors. But I think what matters before you get to the format question is 201 00:12:30.159 --> 00:12:33.960 what you're talking about, and then what's more important with what you're talking about 202 00:12:35.039 --> 00:12:41.559 is who you're talking to. All right, all right, said, it's 203 00:12:41.559 --> 00:12:43.080 so good week. Man, it was a lot of great guests. This 204 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:46.879 week. Is a lot of fun. It was a powerful week. So 205 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:50.720 I'm really curious, like, do you have like your top two or three 206 00:12:50.759 --> 00:12:54.679 takeaways from the week, because you had some amazing guests this week. Oh, 207 00:12:54.759 --> 00:12:56.360 I thought you meant like me personally, like top things I shared. 208 00:12:56.440 --> 00:13:00.159 I'm like, you know what you know? Yeah, no, nobody cares 209 00:13:00.159 --> 00:13:03.799 about what you share. It's all about the guests. Yeah, man, 210 00:13:03.919 --> 00:13:05.759 you know, it was a lot of fun. I think one of the 211 00:13:05.799 --> 00:13:09.039 most you know, I think one of my favorite talks is with probably doc 212 00:13:09.159 --> 00:13:13.200 rock and just kind of hearing his history and, you know, his approach 213 00:13:13.320 --> 00:13:16.000 to reaching a billion people, I think is amazing and it's not what I 214 00:13:16.039 --> 00:13:20.799 loved about it was like not doc rock reaching a million people, but him 215 00:13:20.799 --> 00:13:24.200 reaching a million people through other people by inspiring them to share their message, 216 00:13:24.320 --> 00:13:28.159 to go live, to do podcast, to be, you know, getting 217 00:13:28.240 --> 00:13:31.799 this creator world them. So yeah, man, I think that was pretty 218 00:13:31.799 --> 00:13:35.399 inspirational for me to say, like you know, that's I share similar goals 219 00:13:35.440 --> 00:13:41.039 and values and so that was a cool way to begin to process it and 220 00:13:41.080 --> 00:13:43.799 think about it like it doesn't have to be Billy Thorpe, but just the 221 00:13:43.799 --> 00:13:46.799 community that I'm helping create. So sure, that's awesome. Yeah, man, 222 00:13:46.840 --> 00:13:50.200 I have not watched that episode yet, but I will watch it this 223 00:13:50.240 --> 00:13:52.679 week and I get to catch up on when I can't join live. I 224 00:13:52.799 --> 00:13:54.679 typically catch up on them on the weekend. So I'm excited for that one. 225 00:13:54.840 --> 00:13:58.120 Yeah, absolutely. And in somebody in the chat said, Hey, 226 00:13:58.120 --> 00:14:01.240 it's me, says unknown facebook user. I think you have to give ecamp 227 00:14:01.279 --> 00:14:07.200 permission to to use your information there. And then also my friend Mikey Hay 228 00:14:07.240 --> 00:14:09.759 says I have a hat for you. Mikey, we need to talk when 229 00:14:09.799 --> 00:14:13.519 I get back in the states because I've been looking for an apparel company to 230 00:14:13.639 --> 00:14:16.200 wrap their stuff. I'm showing up every day, so mind as well. 231 00:14:16.240 --> 00:14:20.799 So, Sid I do have some rapid fire questions for you. However, 232 00:14:20.840 --> 00:14:22.799 we're not going to do that right now. We're going to jump into the 233 00:14:22.840 --> 00:14:26.799 main topic and then maybe before we end the show we can do a little 234 00:14:26.879 --> 00:14:31.120 question segment. So the unknown user is Eighty Brinkley. Hey, Katie, 235 00:14:31.159 --> 00:14:35.159 what's that's on? Katie, kitty? Okay, Katie was on there earlier 236 00:14:35.240 --> 00:14:39.919 this week. Pretty Awesome, talking about NFT's talking my web three. A 237 00:14:39.960 --> 00:14:43.399 bunch of head scratch has been it's been a tough week for Bitcoin and Crypto 238 00:14:43.639 --> 00:14:48.039 and we're not going to talk about crypto and NFTS or Bitcoin or any of 239 00:14:48.039 --> 00:14:52.360 that stuff today. So we're going to talk about other stuff, other mystize 240 00:14:52.440 --> 00:14:58.039 to avoid besides crypto. Pretty Hey, hey, put that on the mistake 241 00:14:58.120 --> 00:15:03.279 less there. D It's using there. I've got to get you sure. 242 00:15:03.279 --> 00:15:07.480 I Rochester doesn't work. I'm a hundred percent sure. Said anything that you 243 00:15:07.519 --> 00:15:11.240 push on that buttons, I'm not going to hear it. You can't hear 244 00:15:11.240 --> 00:15:13.559 that? Well, I can't. You just gonna turn it up quite a 245 00:15:13.559 --> 00:15:20.000 bit. Well, boys, Chris Bagleyo's work the other day when he was 246 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:24.039 on the show and I'm like, wait a minute, old guy with technology, 247 00:15:24.039 --> 00:15:28.759 this is going to get interesting. Let's get into the thirteen, because 248 00:15:28.799 --> 00:15:35.200 it's roddy the thirteen before we started to the old jokes. Okay, parady 249 00:15:35.320 --> 00:15:39.039 been subjected old noakes by not even intentionally a joke. What am my clients 250 00:15:39.039 --> 00:15:43.600 today? I'm talking to you about something and he starts to make an old 251 00:15:43.759 --> 00:15:48.080 comment and I went hey, I know where you're going with this, and 252 00:15:48.120 --> 00:15:52.519 he's face just turns beat red because he was about to make an old person 253 00:15:52.600 --> 00:15:58.159 comment and I'm like, okay, I'll own it. I own it all 254 00:15:58.240 --> 00:16:02.399 right. So so let's jump into this. Man, I know you probably 255 00:16:02.440 --> 00:16:06.879 cry in the list, I curated a little bit of a list. I 256 00:16:06.919 --> 00:16:08.360 shared my list with you. You didn't share yours with me, so I 257 00:16:08.360 --> 00:16:12.200 have no idea if we cur ready the same things or not. But Oh, 258 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:17.639 I did not really look at your list. Apology, I've been busy, 259 00:16:17.840 --> 00:16:19.559 so I have no idea. But you did run into pay one. 260 00:16:19.639 --> 00:16:23.360 What are you talking about? Running to business? ESTAKE number one to avoid 261 00:16:23.399 --> 00:16:30.440 in business don't just ghost your cohost before the show. I right, that's 262 00:16:30.480 --> 00:16:33.279 mistake. That's a huge mistake, especially creative. That will get you kicked 263 00:16:33.279 --> 00:16:40.879 off the show. Really, you canceled off of the promise to find this 264 00:16:40.919 --> 00:16:42.840 guy. All right, what's your what's your first thing? Well, your 265 00:16:42.919 --> 00:16:47.360 cares mistake to avoid. So my first thing, the top of my list 266 00:16:47.480 --> 00:16:52.559 of things to avoid, is toxic people. They're all around us and you 267 00:16:52.559 --> 00:16:56.679 get the choice to cheat. You you get the opportunity to choose who is 268 00:16:56.759 --> 00:17:00.279 in your five or in your ten or the people that you're around. You 269 00:17:00.320 --> 00:17:06.960 need to avoid toxic people. Toxic people because they have such a negative impact 270 00:17:07.079 --> 00:17:11.240 on you, your performance, your attitude, how you show up. So 271 00:17:11.319 --> 00:17:15.799 you want to make sure that you're removing those people as kindly as you can, 272 00:17:15.799 --> 00:17:19.839 from your ecosystemability. But I think it's also important just to be aware 273 00:17:21.160 --> 00:17:25.480 that when you are around toxic people, it can be really hard. I 274 00:17:25.559 --> 00:17:30.759 learned this lesson my very first job out of college. My mentor who I 275 00:17:30.799 --> 00:17:36.279 was working with, pulled me aside one day and she's just made a comment. 276 00:17:36.319 --> 00:17:37.839 She said you to be really careful about who you're hanging out with, 277 00:17:40.440 --> 00:17:42.720 and I said, well, I'm looking at like, what are you talking 278 00:17:42.720 --> 00:17:47.599 about? She was just thinking about it, and so I took a couple 279 00:17:47.640 --> 00:17:51.559 of a couple couple of days, I'm thinking about and I realize that this 280 00:17:51.680 --> 00:17:55.240 lady that I had become friends with at this business that we were working the 281 00:17:55.599 --> 00:17:59.920 working together. I would babysitt cave baby, said, what are you? 282 00:18:00.000 --> 00:18:02.200 I'd keep the cast when she got out of town. We just got to 283 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:07.480 be friends right, and I realized that what my mentor realing me was is 284 00:18:07.519 --> 00:18:11.799 this person that I was hanging out with is extremely negative, never said anything 285 00:18:11.839 --> 00:18:15.720 positive, always had a bad attitude and it was wearing off on me. 286 00:18:15.440 --> 00:18:21.960 So she was toxic to me and it took me, they're having, the 287 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:26.000 realization of that in order to remove it was hard. It was hard to 288 00:18:26.000 --> 00:18:30.480 remove my friend from my world, but I had to do it. So 289 00:18:30.039 --> 00:18:33.559 toxic people number one. So so how do you do? Because you know, 290 00:18:33.680 --> 00:18:37.799 I mean I think sometimes we don't know that front, like we don't 291 00:18:37.839 --> 00:18:40.839 we don't know that people are toxic. We don't know that they're bad news, 292 00:18:40.839 --> 00:18:44.559 so to speak. So once you figure that out, which I think 293 00:18:44.640 --> 00:18:48.359 we can all say we've had those people in our lives and we quickly, 294 00:18:48.400 --> 00:18:51.200 you know, figured out like well, this is a bad deal. Do 295 00:18:51.279 --> 00:18:56.359 you rip it off like the Mandate, or do you just start slowly excluding 296 00:18:56.359 --> 00:19:00.279 them from the circle account? What's your approach to that? I've done it 297 00:19:00.319 --> 00:19:06.119 both ways. I ripped off the BANDAID, extricated myself from a situation to 298 00:19:06.279 --> 00:19:10.359 no longer be around people that were toxic to me, that we're not having 299 00:19:10.440 --> 00:19:14.000 a positive impact on me, that we're not supporting me. So I've ripped 300 00:19:14.000 --> 00:19:17.880 it off. That's very recent. But then there's other ones that I've just 301 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:21.319 kind of like been slow, and I've been doing it to you, billy, 302 00:19:21.359 --> 00:19:25.359 actually, and I'm not. Don't learn all your text messages this every 303 00:19:25.400 --> 00:19:27.480 time I text you and just says hey, since get us notifications off, 304 00:19:27.519 --> 00:19:33.240 like all right, that's kind of like only peeling you. Are Pushing you 305 00:19:33.279 --> 00:19:37.759 away out of my ecosystem because kind of toxic to me, you know what? 306 00:19:37.880 --> 00:19:40.599 And that's fine. I'm just really sad about the tax right off. 307 00:19:40.599 --> 00:19:44.079 I won't get for having an elderly person on my and my business. Oh 308 00:19:45.079 --> 00:19:51.480 D that hurts. That are first for the dad jokes. Okay, well, 309 00:19:51.559 --> 00:19:55.200 that's too funny. So so, man. I think one thing in 310 00:19:55.519 --> 00:19:57.200 basically, when I was kind of putting some stuff down and some thoughts about 311 00:19:57.240 --> 00:20:00.240 the subject, I was thinking like, what did I do when I starting 312 00:20:00.279 --> 00:20:03.440 a business, or what didn't I do? What mistakes did I make? 313 00:20:03.519 --> 00:20:07.559 And I think one of the mistakes that I made early on was like not 314 00:20:07.599 --> 00:20:11.440 really having a business plan, like I knew I heard this term, I 315 00:20:11.599 --> 00:20:15.480 looked it up, I done some research on my God, I don't know, 316 00:20:15.160 --> 00:20:18.759 and I think I missed a lot of opportunities in the first year, 317 00:20:18.759 --> 00:20:22.440 maybe even first twenty four months, of owning a business because I didn't have 318 00:20:22.480 --> 00:20:26.160 a plan. I didn't have, you know, vision of goal, any 319 00:20:26.200 --> 00:20:29.680 of that kind of stuff. So that would be my my thing would be 320 00:20:29.720 --> 00:20:33.039 like do the hard work, get the plan and you know, it might 321 00:20:33.119 --> 00:20:37.680 it may change. It's fluid, it's not a it's not a written, 322 00:20:37.720 --> 00:20:41.599 you know book. It's you can change it. You know chapters will change 323 00:20:41.680 --> 00:20:44.359 or whatever, but definitely have a starting place, which I did and I 324 00:20:44.480 --> 00:20:48.799 was just like Whoo, here we go. So I really appreciate that Billy's 325 00:20:49.000 --> 00:20:53.640 I mean, I've certainly have started businesses. M've helped other people start businesses 326 00:20:53.680 --> 00:20:59.240 and I work a lot with entrepreneurs and a business plan is important, but 327 00:20:59.359 --> 00:21:02.640 I think what you just said, it is really critical to remember is you 328 00:21:02.640 --> 00:21:07.200 have to be able to give your race to understand that as you grow, 329 00:21:07.240 --> 00:21:11.400 as your business grows, is you change, as your business changes. That 330 00:21:11.519 --> 00:21:15.440 that document that you created. It's just a guide and it can change to 331 00:21:15.880 --> 00:21:18.200 you don't have to do everything to the tea or to the letter. What 332 00:21:18.279 --> 00:21:22.279 you do need a guide. You're not going to go on a hike in 333 00:21:22.319 --> 00:21:26.720 the woods, necessarily, our drive from California to New York, without a 334 00:21:26.880 --> 00:21:32.200 map. So that's really what a business plan is. It's a map to 335 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:33.519 help you get to where you want to go, but you know it's going 336 00:21:33.559 --> 00:21:37.039 to be twisting turns. What are you smiling about? Is that? You 337 00:21:37.079 --> 00:21:41.640 said map, like you know, GPS might be the two thousand and twenty 338 00:21:41.640 --> 00:21:47.680 two device of us. Did Nono that. This is like, oh, 339 00:21:47.759 --> 00:21:52.000 man Ali Danny Dally counting. This is to this is why I have you 340 00:21:52.039 --> 00:21:53.480 on here, so just so I can like, oh, you shared something 341 00:21:53.519 --> 00:21:57.200 really great. Let me just distract the whole audience by tearing you down, 342 00:21:57.200 --> 00:22:00.599 by with your age. Yeah, man, so, I, yeah, 343 00:22:00.640 --> 00:22:03.039 I agree with you, and I think that's one thing that I've done, 344 00:22:03.079 --> 00:22:07.319 and I still don't do it like totally flesh out the idea, but I 345 00:22:07.599 --> 00:22:10.440 just put someone PA put goals on paper, you know, put a plan 346 00:22:10.519 --> 00:22:12.559 on paper. So I think that's a really good one. So what are 347 00:22:12.599 --> 00:22:15.359 you got next of their what kind of Ping Pollen back and forth here with 348 00:22:15.359 --> 00:22:22.240 with some thoughts? Sure, all right. So my next one is actually, 349 00:22:22.319 --> 00:22:26.359 I have lists. I'm so the one I'm going to do next is, 350 00:22:26.480 --> 00:22:30.000 you know, money is always important when you're when you're in your busines, 351 00:22:30.000 --> 00:22:32.079 in this where you're starting your business, where ever, your money is 352 00:22:32.079 --> 00:22:37.119 always supported and minding your expenses is always important, right, and I think 353 00:22:37.279 --> 00:22:45.839 if there's a mistake here, something to avoid is avoid unnecessary and too many 354 00:22:45.000 --> 00:22:52.519 subscriptions, because when they're bloom and everywhere, right, oh, this software, 355 00:22:52.680 --> 00:22:56.160 this website's only five dollars a month and and this one's only ten dollars 356 00:22:56.160 --> 00:23:00.960 a month. And logically, you're saying, you so, it's only some 357 00:23:00.960 --> 00:23:03.319 month. That's the deal. I can do that. And then all of 358 00:23:03.359 --> 00:23:07.400 a sudden, if you're categorizing your expenses the right way and you pull up 359 00:23:07.440 --> 00:23:12.440 that expense called subscription, you could be spending thousands of dollars a month on 360 00:23:12.559 --> 00:23:17.359 five dollars stuff that. If you're not using it, you got to go 361 00:23:17.440 --> 00:23:21.160 do it. So be very mindful of having too many subscriptions. Are Getting 362 00:23:21.160 --> 00:23:23.519 caught in that trap. Yeah, and keep yeah, keep on. I 363 00:23:23.559 --> 00:23:27.359 mean you know off the I'm this is isn't on my list, but this 364 00:23:27.440 --> 00:23:30.319 is one thing early on a business I made a huge mistake and if I'm 365 00:23:30.359 --> 00:23:34.039 not careful, I can all I can make these mistakes again. Is keeping 366 00:23:34.160 --> 00:23:37.559 up with those expenses. It's keeping, you know, Italian, and not 367 00:23:37.680 --> 00:23:41.480 that you can't go back and figure it out, but you know, it's 368 00:23:41.480 --> 00:23:45.480 a pain, it's a paint, specially when you're doing is stuff like, 369 00:23:45.759 --> 00:23:48.039 you know, like when I was running a tshirt printing business. I mean 370 00:23:48.160 --> 00:23:49.039 like cost to this, cost of that, this just is, you know, 371 00:23:49.079 --> 00:23:53.599 it's like a million different line items to deduct from my taxes and I'd 372 00:23:53.599 --> 00:23:57.200 have to go through every year and painfully. You know, Ho, wait, 373 00:23:57.319 --> 00:24:00.519 what was this for? How did that happen? Until I figured out 374 00:24:00.519 --> 00:24:04.240 a system to keep up with those finances. So I think that I do 375 00:24:04.279 --> 00:24:08.359 that as well. I do it in quick books, and so we categorize 376 00:24:08.359 --> 00:24:12.039 it as an experience, but you just got to be mindful of them because 377 00:24:12.079 --> 00:24:15.839 they add up and if you're not using something, get rid of it right 378 00:24:15.920 --> 00:24:19.319 and it's like email, for example. I use Microsoft three hundred and sixty 379 00:24:19.359 --> 00:24:22.599 five and I have a couple of team members that also are on my plan 380 00:24:22.720 --> 00:24:26.880 that have email addresses. Well, I've had a couple of people roll off 381 00:24:27.119 --> 00:24:32.319 and still paying for their email subscription. It's only five dollars, but I 382 00:24:32.319 --> 00:24:34.880 need to go in to have to make the conscious effort to go into Microsoft 383 00:24:34.960 --> 00:24:40.039 and remove them to save myself ten bucks a month from the subscription plan. 384 00:24:40.160 --> 00:24:45.160 So you can get over absorbed in these subscriptions and it's just good to be 385 00:24:45.279 --> 00:24:48.519 very mindful of what you're paying for. Yeah, and there's an APP out 386 00:24:48.519 --> 00:24:52.599 there. I can't remember the name. If anybody that's watching or listening knows 387 00:24:52.640 --> 00:24:55.200 the name of it, feel free to drop in a chat and nearest to 388 00:24:55.319 --> 00:24:59.160 you. But there is an APP that will you can hook everything up to 389 00:24:59.160 --> 00:25:02.480 a new like tell you what you're paying for subscription wise and all that kind 390 00:25:02.519 --> 00:25:06.240 of stuff. So so do that. And then, talking about money, 391 00:25:06.680 --> 00:25:08.920 here's one big problem that I did when I started once again, and I'm 392 00:25:08.960 --> 00:25:12.720 talking more about the tshirt printing company, is I was trying to get into 393 00:25:12.799 --> 00:25:17.640 the industry. It's aws like, Oh, I'm going to I'M gonna undercut 394 00:25:17.720 --> 00:25:21.640 the market, and so I'm going to get in by undercutting the market in 395 00:25:21.920 --> 00:25:25.880 and so setting the wrong price and not you know, not really knowing the 396 00:25:25.880 --> 00:25:29.359 industry, not really knowing the value of the industry and the value of the 397 00:25:29.359 --> 00:25:33.920 product or the service that you're you know, you're stepping up to to be 398 00:25:33.960 --> 00:25:37.720 a part of. And so I did this and end up undercutting myself. 399 00:25:37.799 --> 00:25:41.920 I mean, there's a reason your competitions price to where they are, and 400 00:25:41.960 --> 00:25:48.160 I learned a huge, huge lesson about undercutting myself, especially talking about taxes. 401 00:25:48.200 --> 00:25:51.599 When it came down to brass tax, tax time, I was like, 402 00:25:51.680 --> 00:25:53.880 Oh, I didn't make any money last year. I did a bunch 403 00:25:53.920 --> 00:25:59.759 of free labor. This is crazy. Profits suppordint yeah, it is. 404 00:25:59.799 --> 00:26:02.480 I mean, you know, no one wants to make money on paper, 405 00:26:02.519 --> 00:26:07.079 but I just didn't make money period. So it's really a very interesting I 406 00:26:07.359 --> 00:26:11.160 have this conversation a lot with people about their pricing and you know, developing 407 00:26:11.160 --> 00:26:15.599 a pricing strategy is hard, especially if you're selling a service and not a 408 00:26:15.599 --> 00:26:18.480 product. It can be really hard to come up with the pricing strategy. 409 00:26:18.480 --> 00:26:22.720 So, Billy, I've got a new project that I've taken on with the 410 00:26:23.000 --> 00:26:27.759 SASS company and which is new for me. But it's a SASS company and 411 00:26:27.799 --> 00:26:33.480 I'm a strategic I'm a paid strategic advisor to this ass company and we are 412 00:26:33.519 --> 00:26:37.359 going through kind of some of the stuff that they're doing and he told me 413 00:26:37.359 --> 00:26:38.839 it's pricing. He gave me the whole pitch about what it is they're doing 414 00:26:38.880 --> 00:26:42.160 and the product that they the service that they offer, and I'm just like 415 00:26:42.200 --> 00:26:48.880 blown away. And he told me the pricing and I'm like it's too cheap, 416 00:26:48.680 --> 00:26:52.559 like you got a double the price, and he looked at me like 417 00:26:52.599 --> 00:26:56.119 Oh, like no, I've can't double the price, and like you got 418 00:26:56.200 --> 00:26:57.319 to double the price. So I did a test for him. I talked 419 00:26:57.400 --> 00:27:03.319 to three people in the last week that could utilize the services and I gave 420 00:27:03.400 --> 00:27:08.119 the three people the new price that I told him, the doubled price, 421 00:27:08.319 --> 00:27:11.160 and all three of them are like, okay, that's great. How can 422 00:27:11.200 --> 00:27:17.640 I get in touch and learn more? So he said his prices and my 423 00:27:17.720 --> 00:27:22.319 opinion, he said his price is wrong and he's losing the opportunity to make 424 00:27:22.319 --> 00:27:26.240 a lot more money that could hire more people, more developers, salespeople, 425 00:27:26.319 --> 00:27:30.920 things like that help grows business. So it's a really hard thing to do 426 00:27:30.000 --> 00:27:33.599 to establish pricing. Yeah, and I think if you think about it too, 427 00:27:33.640 --> 00:27:38.640 it's like sometimes if you're too low. The quality, the perception of 428 00:27:38.640 --> 00:27:42.559 the quality is Super Low and and I notice that too, you know, 429 00:27:42.680 --> 00:27:45.079 in the in the Tashir printing world. But even with like this ring, 430 00:27:45.119 --> 00:27:48.599 I have one like it is just a rubber ring, but there's like a 431 00:27:48.640 --> 00:27:53.359 really expensive brand and then there's like a really cheap brand and the real expensive 432 00:27:53.359 --> 00:27:56.759 brand is everywhere. The really cheap brand I don't even know their name, 433 00:27:56.920 --> 00:28:00.039 but then Kayla ring is like one of the top rands out there, but 434 00:28:00.039 --> 00:28:03.799 it's the same product. Essentially. It's just all about marketing, perception, 435 00:28:03.880 --> 00:28:08.200 quality, perception and all that kind of stuff. So definitely, what's your 436 00:28:08.240 --> 00:28:11.799 pricing? Yeah, I think it also has to do with the value here 437 00:28:11.799 --> 00:28:17.119 as well. You can have a great product, you can build a really 438 00:28:17.160 --> 00:28:21.440 successful business. Unfortunately for ECAM, they can't seem how to get their guests 439 00:28:21.880 --> 00:28:25.039 to actually have clear video, because my videos all blurry. Katie, I'm 440 00:28:25.039 --> 00:28:27.839 feeling your paid. Sorry, let me Tab. Are you watching the feed? 441 00:28:29.039 --> 00:28:33.160 Are you watching the feed somewhere? No, okay, I'm just double 442 00:28:33.200 --> 00:28:37.039 tracking. Well, maybe I'm watching the feed somewhere, but we'll just have 443 00:28:37.160 --> 00:28:41.000 a house. If you are, just you just don't want to feed playing. 444 00:28:41.960 --> 00:28:45.000 You can see chat, though. Let's see the see if I'm blame 445 00:28:45.039 --> 00:28:49.200 any CAM. Okay, we'll see. You'll see what happens. anyways, 446 00:28:49.279 --> 00:28:52.720 the whole point what I was trying to make for you rudely interrupted. He 447 00:28:53.240 --> 00:28:57.039 was. Now go ahead, what are you gonna say? You got some 448 00:28:57.160 --> 00:29:02.240 good the whole boy that I was going to make is you don't have to 449 00:29:02.240 --> 00:29:07.279 be the low price to win business. That's good. People believe always got 450 00:29:07.279 --> 00:29:10.920 to be the low price. You do not have to be the lowest price. 451 00:29:10.960 --> 00:29:14.000 You don't have to enter a market, whatever market you're going into, 452 00:29:14.039 --> 00:29:17.559 and say I got to be the low price leader in order to win business 453 00:29:17.559 --> 00:29:21.440 and grow your company. That is false. You do not have to be 454 00:29:21.480 --> 00:29:26.200 the local the lowest cost. You have to provide amazing value and a really 455 00:29:26.240 --> 00:29:29.599 great product, but you don't have to be the lowest price. Well, 456 00:29:29.720 --> 00:29:33.599 some people just save some money by not do in those local TV commercials. 457 00:29:33.920 --> 00:29:36.799 Low Price, lowest price in town. You know what I always think is 458 00:29:36.799 --> 00:29:38.839 funny too, is like people will say that, but then there's always that 459 00:29:38.960 --> 00:29:41.799 asterisk. You know, you go. I mean you're in the furniture business. 460 00:29:41.799 --> 00:29:45.440 We've done this before. We see the add come on TV or in 461 00:29:45.480 --> 00:29:48.200 the newspapers like Oh, this is blah, blah blah price, and then 462 00:29:48.240 --> 00:29:51.279 you go in the store there like, well, that's only if you're from 463 00:29:51.319 --> 00:29:53.599 the city in Japan. Then you get that price. Is the writing. 464 00:29:53.720 --> 00:29:56.960 If you bought it on Tuesday, on the second to St you have the 465 00:29:56.960 --> 00:30:00.599 month after three o'clock in the afternoon, is only when that deal. Yeah, 466 00:30:00.680 --> 00:30:03.960 yeah, that's stuff. Dressed me crazy. Or even the next I 467 00:30:03.960 --> 00:30:07.480 don't even know a number world. We're just sharing some stuff. Guys. 468 00:30:07.519 --> 00:30:10.920 If you have any questions about this, it is a business coach. He's 469 00:30:10.920 --> 00:30:14.359 a high level business coach, and so if you have any business questions or 470 00:30:14.359 --> 00:30:18.440 how to establish stuff, feel free to answer or ask rather those questions in 471 00:30:18.480 --> 00:30:21.680 the chat. Just put q colon and then put your question so we can 472 00:30:21.759 --> 00:30:26.039 quickly identify it. And if you want to come on the stage here in 473 00:30:26.079 --> 00:30:29.319 a little bit on clubhouse or on guild or on bullhorn, you can. 474 00:30:29.359 --> 00:30:32.680 You can call into all the fun stuff as well. So the next thing 475 00:30:32.720 --> 00:30:37.000 here that I have on my list is what I really struggle with even now 476 00:30:37.000 --> 00:30:40.799 as an entrepreneur. I struggle with this is the kind of us for and 477 00:30:40.960 --> 00:30:47.599 no more mentality where I'm I kind of like refuse to build a team, 478 00:30:47.599 --> 00:30:49.400 you know, I because I want to run lean and mean at times, 479 00:30:49.400 --> 00:30:55.960 but then I understand that there's no scalability without help and I can't really take 480 00:30:56.000 --> 00:30:57.839 my business to the next level if I don't have some help. So I 481 00:30:57.880 --> 00:31:02.920 think I'm learning this and I'm trying to figure this out as I kind of 482 00:31:02.920 --> 00:31:04.839 get to this place now. I did this in the tshirt world where I 483 00:31:06.440 --> 00:31:08.680 literally, would you know, I was printing everything, I was doing all 484 00:31:08.680 --> 00:31:11.480 the sales, I was printing everything. But well, I was doing everything, 485 00:31:11.519 --> 00:31:15.200 the whole thing, in voices to ink on the shirt, like you 486 00:31:15.319 --> 00:31:18.160 name it, I was doing it. And then one time I got in 487 00:31:18.160 --> 00:31:22.200 a situation where I couldn't get this job done and I outsourced it to a 488 00:31:22.200 --> 00:31:25.599 friend of mine, and then all of a sudden I'm like, wait a 489 00:31:25.640 --> 00:31:30.359 minute, I might making money while you're I'm paying you smaller person nage. 490 00:31:30.960 --> 00:31:33.759 I'm making money. You're making money when I'm not doing anything. This is 491 00:31:33.799 --> 00:31:37.839 amazing, and so I think that's when I kind of realized like Oh, 492 00:31:37.839 --> 00:31:41.240 okay, cool, now I'm going to start doing this more often, and 493 00:31:41.279 --> 00:31:45.559 then I end up outsourcing my entire business, which was pretty awesome there for 494 00:31:45.680 --> 00:31:48.599 several years. So yeah, I think you get a you know, my 495 00:31:48.680 --> 00:31:53.640 whole point is don't be afraid to recruit help in higher stuff out, especially 496 00:31:53.640 --> 00:31:57.279 the crap you don't like. That's what I was sure about. That strategic 497 00:31:57.319 --> 00:32:02.880 outdoor saying is what I would I would say strategic outsourcing because, and the 498 00:32:02.920 --> 00:32:07.440 way I do it, I have two people. And then, if the 499 00:32:07.559 --> 00:32:10.480 sleep for people, sorry, I have a youtube guy, that it's my 500 00:32:10.559 --> 00:32:15.279 youtube videos. I have a podcast editor. They're both contractors. They have 501 00:32:15.319 --> 00:32:16.480 a task and know exactly what their task is. They do it. Those 502 00:32:16.519 --> 00:32:22.680 are both very strategic outsourcing for me because if sid had edit a video or 503 00:32:22.720 --> 00:32:25.680 sid had to edit audio, there would be no podcast, there would be 504 00:32:25.680 --> 00:32:30.079 no youtube. Right. It's just it's not my skill set and I tried 505 00:32:30.160 --> 00:32:32.319 it. I looked at the screen and all these lines and all this nonsense 506 00:32:32.319 --> 00:32:36.759 and yeah, it's not happen. Not Happen, and I know what I'm 507 00:32:36.799 --> 00:32:40.680 good at right. And then I have a marketing person who writes emails for 508 00:32:40.720 --> 00:32:44.119 me. That's pretty much what she does and she builds my website based on 509 00:32:44.160 --> 00:32:49.319 the framework and that's really effective and really good. And then I have a 510 00:32:49.319 --> 00:32:52.200 an admin that does pretty much all my accounting and anything else that I need. 511 00:32:52.200 --> 00:32:55.839 And so here's my measuring stick and I kind of mentioned it. If 512 00:32:55.880 --> 00:33:00.920 it feels heavy to me, I'm outsourcing it. I'm not going to do 513 00:33:00.960 --> 00:33:04.799 if it feels heavy, if I sit in front of my computer screen and 514 00:33:04.880 --> 00:33:07.440 I just like drop my shoulders and just like this whole weight is on my 515 00:33:07.480 --> 00:33:12.119 shoulder, then I'm out. Okay, you got a smart out comment. 516 00:33:12.160 --> 00:33:15.240 I see it on your face. I don't know, I was just saying 517 00:33:15.279 --> 00:33:17.880 I was just in here thinking, like I'm trying to think of like what 518 00:33:17.960 --> 00:33:21.720 task I feel that way about right now, but I can't think of one 519 00:33:21.759 --> 00:33:24.079 because I legitimately enjoy a lot of stuff I do. So I was just 520 00:33:24.240 --> 00:33:28.960 so here's the other question. But here's another question. Ask Yourself. Okay, 521 00:33:29.759 --> 00:33:31.200 if it doesn't feel heavy to you and you enjoy doing it, is 522 00:33:31.240 --> 00:33:37.039 the task that you're doing? Is it moving? Is that task moving your 523 00:33:37.079 --> 00:33:44.720 business forward? Yeah, if the answer that question is no or yes, 524 00:33:44.759 --> 00:33:50.039 but then you should consider outsourcing it. Yeah, yeah, all my stuff 525 00:33:50.119 --> 00:33:52.720 right now is the stuff that I need to be doing, that I need 526 00:33:52.799 --> 00:33:55.960 to outsource. I'm just not doing it. We should, we should have 527 00:33:57.000 --> 00:34:00.480 an ever said where we're talking about but seven episode where we talk about Va 528 00:34:00.559 --> 00:34:02.599 is. If anybody has a va that you just crush it. That would 529 00:34:02.599 --> 00:34:06.799 be a really good episode to bring on and bring somebody else on to talk 530 00:34:06.839 --> 00:34:09.360 about it. And and I invited people to ask a question. So we 531 00:34:09.360 --> 00:34:14.280 got gobe or Gabriel here asking a question. He says, so, how 532 00:34:14.280 --> 00:34:17.400 do you know it's time to close a business when you're struggling? This is 533 00:34:17.400 --> 00:34:21.599 a great question. This is a really, really good question, and this 534 00:34:21.639 --> 00:34:24.320 could be a mistake that you make, not knowing when to close the doors. 535 00:34:24.639 --> 00:34:30.159 Yeah, so you know, here's what I would tell you is the 536 00:34:30.159 --> 00:34:32.800 only person that can answer that question. Is You a coach or consulting like 537 00:34:32.840 --> 00:34:37.880 me? Could listen to the conversation, listen to where you are, but 538 00:34:37.000 --> 00:34:42.039 the end of the day, you're the only person that can make that decision. 539 00:34:42.079 --> 00:34:45.719 What I would tell you to do is do some little some some inner 540 00:34:45.800 --> 00:34:49.840 work, if you will, ask yourself the tough questions, like why is 541 00:34:49.880 --> 00:34:52.679 this not successful? What have I done? Do I want this business to 542 00:34:52.760 --> 00:34:58.679 be successful? Does this business bring me joy? And if the business brings 543 00:34:58.679 --> 00:35:00.079 you joy, you want it to be successful. You really have a good 544 00:35:00.119 --> 00:35:04.679 time doing it, then you've got to look at ways you can make the 545 00:35:04.719 --> 00:35:07.400 business successful. What is it that you're not doing that you should be doing? 546 00:35:07.519 --> 00:35:10.440 Is the product or the service? Is it not for the right fit 547 00:35:10.519 --> 00:35:14.440 client? Do you even know who your right that client is? Are you 548 00:35:14.519 --> 00:35:17.119 marketing to them in the right locations? I think these are all the types 549 00:35:17.159 --> 00:35:22.039 of things you'd have to do to really explore whether or not you would want 550 00:35:22.079 --> 00:35:22.880 to keep it. But gobby, at the end of the day, and 551 00:35:23.000 --> 00:35:28.079 my opinion, you are the only person that can make that decision. Yeah, 552 00:35:28.239 --> 00:35:30.320 that's that's good and I think it is tough, Ma, because I've 553 00:35:30.360 --> 00:35:34.239 done this. I'man did this in the last twenty four months. I closed 554 00:35:34.239 --> 00:35:37.760 a business of nearly you same it's like, and it sucks because you're like, 555 00:35:37.760 --> 00:35:43.679 man, I've raised this child of eight years and now I got to 556 00:35:43.719 --> 00:35:46.360 just put you know, take it out back and and put it down. 557 00:35:46.599 --> 00:35:50.159 It sounds terrible. It should have said child and put it down. Maybe 558 00:35:50.159 --> 00:35:52.039 I should at horse or cow, but you know, it's like it is 559 00:35:52.079 --> 00:35:54.000 a tough decision, but I think you know in your gut. You know 560 00:35:54.039 --> 00:35:58.000 it's like when you're in your when you're in a rupt just follow your gun. 561 00:35:58.079 --> 00:36:00.400 There you go. That's my little little time for the day. And 562 00:36:00.519 --> 00:36:02.800 you know, same thing for us. Man, my wife and I knew 563 00:36:02.880 --> 00:36:07.639 like Hey, this is it, you know, so, Gabriel said. 564 00:36:07.760 --> 00:36:10.000 Right now, I'm trying to outsource ways for other people to pay my bills, 565 00:36:10.039 --> 00:36:15.159 but can't find any takers. If you do find any takers, because 566 00:36:15.199 --> 00:36:17.760 we reject to me and billy, let you know. Let me know what 567 00:36:17.800 --> 00:36:22.679 your secret rescip is. I love for other people pay my stuff. Maybe 568 00:36:22.679 --> 00:36:27.199 we'll turn into the twinder to twinder tender swindler. There we go. Who've 569 00:36:27.239 --> 00:36:30.079 seen that? Anyway, I'M NOT gonna get off topic. Forget it like 570 00:36:30.119 --> 00:36:31.679 waiting. It's on the Netflix right. I did see a pop up on 571 00:36:31.719 --> 00:36:36.280 Netflix. It's on the Netflix. You got it is on the Netflix. 572 00:36:36.519 --> 00:36:38.719 Hey, I got a good Netflix for you. World Sidebar for a second. 573 00:36:39.320 --> 00:36:45.760 If you haven't watched Molly's game, you need to watch molly's game on 574 00:36:45.559 --> 00:36:50.880 on Netflix. It's amazing. You know who molly is? No idea? 575 00:36:51.239 --> 00:36:53.920 Oh my gosh, I just lost her last name. She was she held 576 00:36:53.960 --> 00:37:00.599 gambling rings in the in Los Angeles and New York and she got busted for 577 00:37:00.800 --> 00:37:04.639 illegal it was not illegal to host of gambling or card issues. Hosting Poker 578 00:37:04.679 --> 00:37:07.840 Games wasn't illegal for her to do it, but she started taking money off 579 00:37:07.840 --> 00:37:12.079 the table and that was illegal and she got busted. But it's an amazing 580 00:37:12.119 --> 00:37:15.840 story of what she did how she did it, and I'll see. You 581 00:37:15.880 --> 00:37:19.199 got to go watch Molly's game. It's about two hours long. It's really 582 00:37:19.199 --> 00:37:21.719 good. So there you go. God, that's a quick way to make 583 00:37:21.760 --> 00:37:25.440 some cash. Just go take a table at a casino. See, actually, 584 00:37:25.480 --> 00:37:28.760 she's running her own game, own game. All right. So I'm 585 00:37:28.800 --> 00:37:30.239 going to go to the next one. Let's get show. Are you ready? 586 00:37:30.360 --> 00:37:35.559 So most of people that are listening know me. You know this billy. 587 00:37:35.800 --> 00:37:39.840 I'm a huge proponent of education and growth and learning right, learning new 588 00:37:39.880 --> 00:37:44.719 things, learning things are going to help move your business forward. All about 589 00:37:44.760 --> 00:37:47.199 you getting better, because the more you grow, the more your business grows. 590 00:37:47.239 --> 00:37:52.719 All Right, I'm a huge fan. However, there is such a 591 00:37:52.840 --> 00:37:58.440 thing, and this is the thing to avoid, is over contenting yourself. 592 00:37:58.920 --> 00:38:05.960 You can consume way too much information, and over consumption of information can stop 593 00:38:06.039 --> 00:38:08.159 you dead in the tracks. Because this podcast is telling you this, and 594 00:38:08.199 --> 00:38:10.800 this was telling you this. You just read an article about this and you're 595 00:38:10.840 --> 00:38:15.360 in a clubhouse from about this and then you don't take any action because you 596 00:38:15.400 --> 00:38:19.039 over contented on wherever the topic is. So be very careful with that. 597 00:38:19.320 --> 00:38:22.280 And that's a good takeaway, and that was something that Chris Stone said yesterday 598 00:38:22.280 --> 00:38:27.480 on the show, was it's fine to consume contents, find to be a 599 00:38:27.480 --> 00:38:31.599 consumer of content. Just be sure that you're creating more content than you're consuming, 600 00:38:31.639 --> 00:38:35.119 and I think that's a good, you know, good metric to say 601 00:38:35.159 --> 00:38:37.880 am I creating more, you know, hours of content that I am consuming 602 00:38:37.920 --> 00:38:42.400 ours contents, and that's for a lot of people watching the show, like 603 00:38:42.440 --> 00:38:45.239 you guys, are content creator. So that make sure, the most sense 604 00:38:45.559 --> 00:38:50.079 and there's ways to overcome that or whatever. So the next thing here on 605 00:38:50.119 --> 00:38:52.000 my list, and I see this a lot in business, but I see 606 00:38:52.039 --> 00:38:58.320 this a lot also with creators, is avoiding technology. is saying well, 607 00:38:58.440 --> 00:39:00.800 let's just going to be too hard for me to learn, this is not 608 00:39:00.840 --> 00:39:02.440 going to be right. You know, it's like it's too much of a 609 00:39:02.559 --> 00:39:07.199 learning curve in you know, similar to the outsource thing. There's people that 610 00:39:07.280 --> 00:39:10.800 will, you know, like Chris once again, to reference him from yesterdays, 611 00:39:10.960 --> 00:39:15.360 is you know, he'll live well I've produced live shows and podcasts and 612 00:39:15.400 --> 00:39:20.159 all kinds of stuff in and I think it's a really you know, you 613 00:39:20.199 --> 00:39:22.679 don't let the text stop you know, I see so many people not getting 614 00:39:22.679 --> 00:39:27.760 their message out, not starting in business because they don't understand the technology. 615 00:39:27.800 --> 00:39:30.159 But there's so much information out there. So yeah, that would be my 616 00:39:30.840 --> 00:39:35.559 don't avoid the technology. Said, I know we're going to say so go 617 00:39:35.599 --> 00:39:38.559 ahead and say it. I have no comment to this because no comment to 618 00:39:38.679 --> 00:39:45.880 this. I am not the most techy person. However, there are some 619 00:39:45.000 --> 00:39:50.239 text that I can certainly easily figure out how to use and to embrace, 620 00:39:50.639 --> 00:39:54.400 but I'm not the I'm not a techy person. But you you outsource what 621 00:39:54.519 --> 00:39:58.280 you're not good at. So I mean you, I do. Yeah, 622 00:39:58.320 --> 00:40:04.000 except I can't outsource ECAM body. You can't figure out how to. You 623 00:40:04.039 --> 00:40:07.480 can't. Don't, don't, don't even, don't, even, you can't. 624 00:40:07.519 --> 00:40:08.880 I well, let meet I'm going to meet you right now. It's 625 00:40:08.960 --> 00:40:12.400 part of my way. I was like, why you can't meet me? 626 00:40:12.719 --> 00:40:15.519 That was a it's a part of my that's a part of something. When 627 00:40:15.519 --> 00:40:16.760 I get back to North Carolina I want to talk to you about because we 628 00:40:16.840 --> 00:40:20.840 can do that. You know you can. We can set it up, 629 00:40:20.840 --> 00:40:22.199 we can set up together and then I can either show you how to use 630 00:40:22.239 --> 00:40:25.360 it or show up and remote produce for you, which would because I brought 631 00:40:25.480 --> 00:40:29.639 the about the black Friday thing. Youah, yeah, you have to deal. 632 00:40:29.719 --> 00:40:30.880 So now we going to get in there using it and I think they're 633 00:40:30.920 --> 00:40:35.360 figuring out the interview issue, which we figured it out really nice on this 634 00:40:35.360 --> 00:40:37.039 show, because you just can't stream the show and be on the show at 635 00:40:37.039 --> 00:40:39.159 the same time. So there you go. You learn something new. Eight 636 00:40:39.800 --> 00:40:43.920 for May and I haven't even I've turned it on once. All this stuff 637 00:40:43.960 --> 00:40:49.239 that POPs but I fully admit that I have invested in technology that I haven't 638 00:40:49.400 --> 00:40:52.280 used. And now you know. This goes to the subscription thing for a 639 00:40:52.320 --> 00:41:00.800 second. Billy, I it's always really intriguing to like they give you this 640 00:41:00.880 --> 00:41:06.239 deal to buy it for the year and it's five dollars more a month, 641 00:41:06.360 --> 00:41:09.400 right when you in technology is this is the bar, their big culprit of 642 00:41:09.440 --> 00:41:13.760 this. It's five dollars more a month if you just go month to month. 643 00:41:14.079 --> 00:41:17.519 I will go month to month first to see if I'm going to use 644 00:41:17.559 --> 00:41:22.719 it, if it's effective, if it's a tool that I want and if 645 00:41:22.760 --> 00:41:25.000 it's not, I just cancel. So I'll pay an extra ten bucks rather 646 00:41:25.079 --> 00:41:29.960 than lose two to five hundred dollars because I can't get my money back because 647 00:41:29.960 --> 00:41:32.039 I paid for a year. True, that's what my wife does to she's 648 00:41:32.119 --> 00:41:35.719 like, Oh, I'm paying the ten dollars instead of the eight dollars. 649 00:41:35.760 --> 00:41:39.199 I'm like, I just paid the whole stupid thing up front and like then 650 00:41:39.239 --> 00:41:42.639 I feel then I feel obligated. You know, I'm paid two hundred and 651 00:41:42.639 --> 00:41:45.639 fifty bucks a year for e Cam or whatever, or whatever it was when 652 00:41:45.639 --> 00:41:47.719 I bought it. I'm like, all right, I'm gonna use the dumb 653 00:41:47.800 --> 00:41:52.360 thing and I use it every day now. So it's turning up pretty good. 654 00:41:52.440 --> 00:41:57.440 It said. I don't even know how many avoiding things that we've turned 655 00:41:57.440 --> 00:42:00.199 into. But what's another one you get on your list? I've done one, 656 00:42:00.239 --> 00:42:02.320 two, three, I've done for I have a keeping track. So 657 00:42:02.599 --> 00:42:07.239 Le Means you've done five. So we're nine. Yes, we're not. 658 00:42:07.400 --> 00:42:12.840 All right. Great. So so here's something that I think is important to 659 00:42:13.000 --> 00:42:17.239 is we're marketing our business and we're creating content, especially for content creators, 660 00:42:17.280 --> 00:42:22.320 and we're out there and we're really trying to reach our ideal customer, share 661 00:42:22.360 --> 00:42:27.320 our message, share of value. Just remember, you don't have to be 662 00:42:27.400 --> 00:42:31.719 everywhere. In fact, I think you should avoid trying to be everywhere. 663 00:42:31.840 --> 00:42:35.880 I think that just sets you up for failure, set your business up for 664 00:42:35.920 --> 00:42:38.400 failure, because you can't focus. I think you need to focus where your 665 00:42:38.440 --> 00:42:43.239 customers are. If you know who your customers are and you know the problems 666 00:42:43.280 --> 00:42:46.159 that you solve for them. In knowing who your customers are, you know 667 00:42:46.199 --> 00:42:50.800 where they hang out and if they only hang out on Pinterest, then create 668 00:42:50.840 --> 00:42:53.559 content on pinterest. If they hang out on Linkedin and Instagram, like mine, 669 00:42:53.599 --> 00:42:59.760 create content that supports Linkedin and instagram in order to talk to your ideal 670 00:42:59.840 --> 00:43:02.440 client. You do not have to be anywhere, because God knows how many 671 00:43:02.559 --> 00:43:07.000 social media platforms there are at this very moment and they'll be ten more by 672 00:43:07.039 --> 00:43:12.000 the end of this year. So you cannot do it all and you cannot 673 00:43:12.000 --> 00:43:15.719 be everywhere. In norse should you be hundred percent of man. I agree 674 00:43:15.719 --> 00:43:17.960 with that. I don't always follow that role, specially in live streaming, 675 00:43:19.199 --> 00:43:22.400 but I agree. I agree that you know the more and when you first 676 00:43:22.400 --> 00:43:25.440 start it might take a little time to figure that out you might have to 677 00:43:25.440 --> 00:43:30.840 be in more places to figure out WHO's resonating. Yeah, but then also, 678 00:43:30.880 --> 00:43:32.039 I think there's a lot of market research now. You know, take 679 00:43:32.119 --> 00:43:36.400 I mean, once again, technologies, there the informations out there, like, 680 00:43:36.880 --> 00:43:40.519 you know, you can figure out like who is on instagram versus tick 681 00:43:40.599 --> 00:43:45.360 tock versus Linkedin, you know whatnot. So it's okay to test right. 682 00:43:45.599 --> 00:43:50.480 It's okay to test right. Hey, I'm going to test being on twitch 683 00:43:50.599 --> 00:43:53.159 or snapchat or whatever, Tick Tock, I'm going to test it. If 684 00:43:53.199 --> 00:43:58.239 it works, and that's telling you you're getting engagement, you're getting your people 685 00:43:58.239 --> 00:44:00.519 are not just engaging in the post, but they're reaching out to you. 686 00:44:00.400 --> 00:44:04.960 You got DM conversations going on stuff like that, then you know it's an 687 00:44:04.960 --> 00:44:07.400 effective tool. If it doesn't, then don't go back to the tool, 688 00:44:07.440 --> 00:44:10.239 don't go back to the platform. Yeah, exactly, man, good information, 689 00:44:10.280 --> 00:44:13.719 and that's one thing I'm working on, working on, like especially with 690 00:44:13.760 --> 00:44:16.039 livestreaming, like where do I need to be and where people going to come 691 00:44:16.079 --> 00:44:19.360 and show up? But you know, if I look to the chat, 692 00:44:19.360 --> 00:44:22.519 people are on all the platforms that I've posted, their commenting from all the 693 00:44:22.519 --> 00:44:27.199 platforms. I'm like, well, you know. I mean you're a really 694 00:44:27.199 --> 00:44:31.760 great point, billy. You've had comments from facebook, from Linkedin, from 695 00:44:32.679 --> 00:44:36.639 on Youtube. I mean so, yeah, I mean it literally is a 696 00:44:36.679 --> 00:44:38.599 really good point. That means people are consuming your content on those platforms. 697 00:44:38.639 --> 00:44:45.400 So and God is probably watching on Linkedin and Youtube. Like linkedin and facebook 698 00:44:45.400 --> 00:44:51.599 and Youtube. Save done seeing all the phases. So what's another one? 699 00:44:51.599 --> 00:44:54.159 What you got? The next thing, and this is I get on this 700 00:44:54.199 --> 00:44:59.480 for content creators all the time, is there's no focus or no no niche, 701 00:44:59.480 --> 00:45:02.400 no Ni Itch, no niche. You trying to be everything, similar 702 00:45:02.480 --> 00:45:06.639 to since it's so you can't be everywhere all the time. While you can't 703 00:45:06.719 --> 00:45:09.480 be everything to everyone all the time, you're going to be nothing to everyone. 704 00:45:09.559 --> 00:45:12.800 You can be nothing to know one. You know, it's like it's 705 00:45:12.920 --> 00:45:15.039 right. You know, you got to really figure out who it is, 706 00:45:15.079 --> 00:45:19.800 who you're talking to, what you're talking to him about. And I think 707 00:45:20.199 --> 00:45:24.119 really and honestly said, in all of my business experience, which is, 708 00:45:24.159 --> 00:45:29.840 you know, small to some more than others, any time I really focus 709 00:45:29.880 --> 00:45:34.559 and say here's who I'm serving in, here's I'm serving them, my business 710 00:45:34.559 --> 00:45:37.719 just takes off. Like every time, even in the T shirt printing world. 711 00:45:37.920 --> 00:45:44.599 Sure, bars, restaurants, barbershops, schools, churches, all those 712 00:45:44.639 --> 00:45:49.159 places order t shirts. But when I really focused and said Hey, I'm 713 00:45:49.239 --> 00:45:54.360 the guy that helps nonprofits create product tables, boom, my business took off. 714 00:45:54.360 --> 00:45:59.320 People started calling me, referral started coming in and I really, you 715 00:45:59.360 --> 00:46:01.679 know, put myself into that world, into that community and became known as 716 00:46:01.719 --> 00:46:05.519 the t shirt guy like that. They didn't even know the name of my 717 00:46:05.559 --> 00:46:07.920 business. There was like, Hey, this is billy. Yeah, Oh, 718 00:46:07.960 --> 00:46:09.639 you're the t shirt guy that you know. Ryan enjoy told me about 719 00:46:09.639 --> 00:46:12.119 you. I'm like, yeah, that's me. Like, how can I 720 00:46:12.159 --> 00:46:15.400 help you? And so I think that is something I learned to is like 721 00:46:16.079 --> 00:46:20.039 figure out your niche, pick your people and go after them. So, 722 00:46:20.199 --> 00:46:22.320 yeah, Hey, would say Mr all, he's in the house. Hey, 723 00:46:22.440 --> 00:46:25.239 Dr Al Lee, what's up? You did your shout out at the 724 00:46:25.280 --> 00:46:29.480 top of the top of the episodes. He says good advice, buility. 725 00:46:29.519 --> 00:46:31.400 I like that. I like she jumps in, says good advice, bility. 726 00:46:31.400 --> 00:46:35.239 There's my dogs. They always need to be on the show. And 727 00:46:35.280 --> 00:46:37.639 you think this advice and stopped trying to make everyone or be everything that everyone. 728 00:46:37.679 --> 00:46:42.440 I believe it's what she said it went away. So yeah, so 729 00:46:42.679 --> 00:46:46.440 I'm going to add to that. Billy. Every person is not your customer. 730 00:46:46.480 --> 00:46:50.840 I don't care what you're selling. Every person is not your customer. 731 00:46:50.920 --> 00:46:53.719 When you zone in is the example, billy gay. When you zone into 732 00:46:53.719 --> 00:46:58.800 who your customer is, you mark it to them. You can skyrocket Your 733 00:46:58.800 --> 00:47:00.159 Business. You just got to know who that customers. And I love that. 734 00:47:00.199 --> 00:47:06.000 You said I'm in the TSHIRT guy to nonprofits and you build over many 735 00:47:06.079 --> 00:47:09.239 years a very, very successful business. Now I'm the number one live streaming 736 00:47:09.280 --> 00:47:14.679 guy to everyone. Know, I'm just getting in my own mind, but 737 00:47:14.719 --> 00:47:16.639 I mean some people would do that. Yeah, Hey, this is creating 738 00:47:16.719 --> 00:47:22.320 daily for everyone. Yeah, we're this is creating daily for content creators, 739 00:47:22.320 --> 00:47:24.840 for content creators. Yeah, and I really focus, you know, and 740 00:47:24.880 --> 00:47:28.719 I'm and I'm finding that focus. And I think that's the thing too, 741 00:47:28.760 --> 00:47:30.440 when you when you start something, maybe a new project, maybe it's not 742 00:47:30.480 --> 00:47:34.639 a complete, you know, business. Like there's no you know, for 743 00:47:34.719 --> 00:47:38.360 this show, there's no like financial income plan at this moment. I'm doing 744 00:47:38.400 --> 00:47:42.119 it because I love it and I've kind of figured it out on the way 745 00:47:42.239 --> 00:47:45.480 and I am trying to figure out, like who resonates with me the most 746 00:47:45.519 --> 00:47:49.800 on this show what opportunities will present themselves, and it's really just for me 747 00:47:49.840 --> 00:47:52.559 as a content creator to have an outlet. You know, when I have 748 00:47:52.599 --> 00:47:55.079 a day like today, where I got robbed and somebody bought my car randomly 749 00:47:55.079 --> 00:47:58.360 and I'm like, how do I process all this? I'm gonna go live 750 00:47:58.360 --> 00:48:01.199 stream. It's like therapy. So yeah, I think that's a I think 751 00:48:01.199 --> 00:48:05.800 that's a thing too. It's like, you know, just just just figure 752 00:48:05.880 --> 00:48:07.440 out who you want to talk to and start building your community, because that's 753 00:48:07.480 --> 00:48:10.480 what it's going to take. I've seen this in every podcast I've done, 754 00:48:10.519 --> 00:48:15.440 every business I've ran. When I find that audience that I'm serving, those 755 00:48:15.480 --> 00:48:21.079 people I'm serving, it really helps me quickly build a community rather than saying, 756 00:48:21.119 --> 00:48:22.679 Oh, this person likes my show, this person likes my show, 757 00:48:22.679 --> 00:48:25.320 now let me try to figure out what they have in common so we can 758 00:48:25.360 --> 00:48:30.280 bring it community together. But if I'm building this subject matter, then people 759 00:48:30.320 --> 00:48:34.480 who like that are going to find it and come and be a part of 760 00:48:34.480 --> 00:48:37.960 that community. So yeah, man, it's a it's sakes and it's tough 761 00:48:37.000 --> 00:48:42.480 because you're like I just it's in really as a consecretor. It's tough because 762 00:48:42.480 --> 00:48:45.360 you're like man, I I can, I can weave in and out so 763 00:48:45.400 --> 00:48:47.559 many topics, but you know, like on Clubhouse, like when have I 764 00:48:47.559 --> 00:48:50.840 ever got on clubhouse and go hey, what's up, guys on the T 765 00:48:50.920 --> 00:48:53.679 shirt guy? Never, I know t shirts better than I know anything on 766 00:48:53.679 --> 00:48:59.000 the planet, but I've never done that. I've always been on the podcast 767 00:48:59.000 --> 00:49:02.960 monetization person because that's what I want to do and be known for on that 768 00:49:04.079 --> 00:49:07.679 particular platform. So Anyway, Ye, so, billy, I would really 769 00:49:07.719 --> 00:49:10.480 like for us to go back for just a couple of sentences there, maybe 770 00:49:10.599 --> 00:49:15.559 a minute or so, and I'd like to actually shift this conversation into a 771 00:49:15.599 --> 00:49:19.559 bit of more of a coaching session to talk about really I'm just back. 772 00:49:19.599 --> 00:49:21.559 What do you want? What you want me to coach you on? Said, 773 00:49:21.559 --> 00:49:25.880 what do you want? I'm gonna be the One coaching you about monetization 774 00:49:27.079 --> 00:49:30.400 strategies for this. Oh yeah, he because you don't have a plan, 775 00:49:31.159 --> 00:49:37.920 which is going to lead me into the next thing. Okay, because you 776 00:49:37.960 --> 00:49:40.159 said at the top of our about a business plan. Be Sure you have 777 00:49:40.199 --> 00:49:45.760 a business plan. I also think with that you need to make sure that 778 00:49:45.800 --> 00:49:49.400 you know what your goals are. You know what your goals are for whatever 779 00:49:49.440 --> 00:49:52.880 it is that you're doing. And the problem with goals there's all different types 780 00:49:52.880 --> 00:49:55.559 of goals. Whatever type of goal you think is the one you want to 781 00:49:55.559 --> 00:49:58.960 set and that's the one you should say. We could have a whole conversation 782 00:49:59.039 --> 00:50:04.639 about goal setting and different types. But I think the challenge with goal setting, 783 00:50:04.760 --> 00:50:07.079 especially in business, is that we set goals, billy or Pete, 784 00:50:07.159 --> 00:50:12.199 and I'm guilty of it too, that we set goals that are two aspirational 785 00:50:13.239 --> 00:50:17.559 and then there's this thing out here there were always striving for that we're never 786 00:50:17.599 --> 00:50:22.440 going to get because it's so pie in the sky aspirational. You got a 787 00:50:22.480 --> 00:50:25.480 break that. It's great to have aspirations, it's great to know where you 788 00:50:25.519 --> 00:50:29.519 want to go, but let's be a little bit more realistic with it. 789 00:50:29.599 --> 00:50:34.519 So you tell me I can't make a million dollars and thirty days come on 790 00:50:34.800 --> 00:50:38.920 from my new business I just started. Well, with that forehead showing the 791 00:50:38.960 --> 00:50:44.119 way it is per kind of but knees comments, no way to hat on. 792 00:50:44.599 --> 00:50:47.079 You can probably get a little hat. This is a million dollar billboard 793 00:50:47.199 --> 00:50:51.920 right here. People just don't known a billion there forehead with log hair. 794 00:50:52.000 --> 00:50:54.079 I told you need to get a Puerto Rican haircut before you leave. Bro 795 00:50:54.280 --> 00:50:57.719 I'm trying to get a Porto Rican anything. Right now, I'm like trying 796 00:50:57.719 --> 00:51:00.920 to get my card sold, bags packed, like I'll get a haircut before 797 00:51:00.920 --> 00:51:04.400 I leave, because they do a good job here. I'm tell you that 798 00:51:04.440 --> 00:51:06.679 you need to just get that. Got To get you that part that you 799 00:51:06.719 --> 00:51:08.800 had before, the hard guard part. Yeah, yeah, I got to 800 00:51:08.840 --> 00:51:14.599 get a lightning bolt or something numb sign you where gold chain. With this 801 00:51:14.639 --> 00:51:17.400 shirt on, it be looking good. got a tattoo. So now a 802 00:51:17.480 --> 00:51:21.480 lightning bolt, a hard part and then a gold chain. Man, I 803 00:51:21.480 --> 00:51:23.880 think you're going to leave Puerto Rico and style. I'm gonna go hard man. 804 00:51:23.960 --> 00:51:27.440 I get you some looney tune shirt. So that's big down here, 805 00:51:27.480 --> 00:51:30.840 like look, anyway, I think I got one more and then maybe you 806 00:51:30.840 --> 00:51:32.800 got one more rights. That where we're at. Yeah, I do all 807 00:51:32.880 --> 00:51:37.960 right, perfect. So I'll go with my last one here and then I'll 808 00:51:37.000 --> 00:51:40.119 let you go to your last one. And this is the thing that I've 809 00:51:40.159 --> 00:51:44.599 struggle with the most in my entire life, not just in business, not 810 00:51:44.639 --> 00:51:47.679 just in content creation, but is really just to say I'm going to do 811 00:51:47.719 --> 00:51:52.480 it. This is my commitment. I'm going to commit. And you know, 812 00:51:52.559 --> 00:51:57.440 because I think sometimes its entrepreneurs especially. We this is part of what 813 00:51:57.480 --> 00:52:00.559 we like to do. Like the entrepreneur part I really love is the start 814 00:52:00.639 --> 00:52:04.320 up phase, is the figuring out, how does this puzzle go together? 815 00:52:04.440 --> 00:52:07.920 How does this gear crank with the other gear, like how does all this 816 00:52:07.960 --> 00:52:12.559 stuff, you know, come together and how can I make money doing that? 817 00:52:12.760 --> 00:52:15.880 And then, you know, it's like Oh, I love that part, 818 00:52:15.960 --> 00:52:19.760 it's awesome. And then when the thing starts rolling and it starts moving 819 00:52:19.840 --> 00:52:22.960 and it starts going, I'm like cool, I don't want to do this 820 00:52:23.039 --> 00:52:27.679 daytoday stuff anymore, like I just like can somebody else do this, like 821 00:52:28.000 --> 00:52:30.719 or I'll sell it or I'll get rid of it, because I love that 822 00:52:30.760 --> 00:52:34.559 part. You know, I often joke like is there a business where I 823 00:52:34.559 --> 00:52:37.920 could start where somebody goes, I want to start a business, I just 824 00:52:37.920 --> 00:52:42.119 need some ideas and they just put me in a padded room for like forty 825 00:52:42.159 --> 00:52:44.920 hours with some white boards, like I will come up with some crazy, 826 00:52:45.000 --> 00:52:47.840 fun stuff, because that's what I love, is to start up part. 827 00:52:47.920 --> 00:52:53.000 However, I realized that the startup is fun, but the startup doesn't really 828 00:52:53.039 --> 00:52:57.599 matter. It's like the longevity of it. It's the commitment, all that 829 00:52:57.639 --> 00:53:00.039 kind of stuff. So I got to remind myself with that all the time 830 00:53:00.280 --> 00:53:04.760 with any project. Really like committed. Here we go. So you know 831 00:53:04.800 --> 00:53:07.119 the answer to that question is yes, there is someone that would hire you 832 00:53:07.199 --> 00:53:12.960 to help idate business ideas. It's called consulting, by the way. Well, 833 00:53:13.000 --> 00:53:17.280 guess what? Billy Thorpe consulting coming right up we actually, I don't 834 00:53:17.320 --> 00:53:21.360 think he's called Billy Thorpe Consulting. There's two. We don't want people to 835 00:53:21.360 --> 00:53:25.639 confuse you with the Australian rock star Billy Thorpe, Bro. So He's dead. 836 00:53:25.679 --> 00:53:30.639 I'm taking still might get confused with somebody famous, and we know you're 837 00:53:30.840 --> 00:53:34.360 famous. He's old, is Bro. I'm the hot stuff on the streets. 838 00:53:34.400 --> 00:53:38.000 I think it's hot stuff on this ha ha. N Where are you, 839 00:53:38.000 --> 00:53:40.719 man? I need some smart Alec comments up in the Chab Buddy. 840 00:53:40.760 --> 00:53:44.599 I mean, come on, and I think it should be called forehead, 841 00:53:44.599 --> 00:53:47.599 forehead consulting for Headkins, tod there we go, for heads are better than 842 00:53:47.679 --> 00:53:58.000 none whatever, or one forehead is better. My God, I think you're 843 00:53:58.079 --> 00:54:01.159 consulting business, since where it's, as were, doing insult consulting business name 844 00:54:01.199 --> 00:54:06.599 should be. Oh, I had to, I had some really good ideas, 845 00:54:06.639 --> 00:54:10.159 but I'm too old and I forgot. That's okay, but you know 846 00:54:10.199 --> 00:54:14.480 that that struggle is real. Right. As for kids, crap so much, 847 00:54:15.360 --> 00:54:19.400 you know. Oh No, Dr eleys got strong, Bro Strong, 848 00:54:19.559 --> 00:54:28.880 strong shot, ALC sorr brow. Shit's a strong bro Bro broke, strong 849 00:54:29.000 --> 00:54:32.400 brow. Yes, Oh my God. All right, so I'm okay if 850 00:54:32.400 --> 00:54:36.320 the old jokes, because I forget a lot. Trust me. I know 851 00:54:36.760 --> 00:54:39.440 you forgot to call me last night when seeing and calling back, you didn't 852 00:54:40.719 --> 00:54:43.880 hold on. I did not say I was going to call you back. 853 00:54:44.000 --> 00:54:45.159 You said you were called me back. You did call me back and we 854 00:54:45.199 --> 00:54:49.679 talked. You didn't text me tonight either. said, what kind of friend 855 00:54:49.719 --> 00:54:53.800 are you? Know? Anyway, I remember the conversation earlier re moving toxic 856 00:54:53.840 --> 00:54:55.960 people. I mean, I'm trying to push it, and push it right 857 00:54:57.000 --> 00:55:00.119 now. I know. All Right, so I'm my last. Next wee 858 00:55:00.360 --> 00:55:05.000 moving. Then let's go. All right, last one, let's roll. 859 00:55:05.079 --> 00:55:07.639 So this one kind of ties into and I've totally lost count now, but 860 00:55:07.679 --> 00:55:10.360 this one ties in a little bit to what you just said, which is 861 00:55:12.639 --> 00:55:20.519 we can't let fear stop us so don't let the fear of the unknown stop 862 00:55:20.599 --> 00:55:24.880 you from moving forward. Just because you don't know the outcome doesn't mean that 863 00:55:24.920 --> 00:55:29.480 you shouldn't move forward with it, that you shouldn't try, that you shouldn't 864 00:55:29.519 --> 00:55:32.360 give it a hun you in ten percent. Don't let fear stop you. 865 00:55:32.880 --> 00:55:38.599 So that's like avoid, avoid, avoid, letting fear prevent you for reaching 866 00:55:38.639 --> 00:55:43.760 for your dreams. Love that, man, I love that. I'm gonna 867 00:55:43.880 --> 00:55:47.079 yeah, let's coming to give a shout out to Dr Ali. Dr Ali 868 00:55:47.119 --> 00:55:52.360 didn't let fear stop her. We had this conversation in coffee this morning. 869 00:55:52.360 --> 00:55:59.840 Are Right after coffee this morning and though I had written this before saying that 870 00:55:59.840 --> 00:56:04.400 out loud, billy, I was talking to myself. Yeah, right then, 871 00:56:04.440 --> 00:56:07.119 in there, I was talking to myself. So don't let fear stop 872 00:56:07.199 --> 00:56:10.440 you. I think it's hugely important. Oh, there's my son screaming in 873 00:56:10.480 --> 00:56:15.199 the other room. Sons and dogs always going to be on the show and 874 00:56:15.360 --> 00:56:16.880 I think it's huge, you know, and I think if the fear of 875 00:56:17.360 --> 00:56:22.159 certain things, like fear in general, but fear of quote unquote, failure, 876 00:56:22.159 --> 00:56:25.320 fear of what other people think, and, you know, I think 877 00:56:25.320 --> 00:56:28.760 we had to take some of this stuff from captive and really get a good 878 00:56:28.800 --> 00:56:31.159 perspective of it. You know, I spent ten months here in Puerto Rico 879 00:56:31.199 --> 00:56:35.079 and people often go like man, why are you moving back from paradise, 880 00:56:35.159 --> 00:56:38.599 like that's Paradise, and I'm like do paradise is a perspective, it is 881 00:56:38.639 --> 00:56:43.920 not a place. And so that is what I've learned being here for so 882 00:56:44.000 --> 00:56:47.000 long, is there's a lot more stuff in life that matters and don't matters 883 00:56:47.000 --> 00:56:51.480 than what we think matters and doesn't matter. And so, you know, 884 00:56:51.519 --> 00:56:53.800 I think that is a part of creating a business, creating it a creative 885 00:56:53.840 --> 00:56:59.960 project or whatever is. Go with your gut, lean on yourself, trust 886 00:57:00.119 --> 00:57:02.719 yourself and just go for it and the worst case scenario is like what you 887 00:57:02.760 --> 00:57:05.480 did, you don't do what you thought you're going to do and you got 888 00:57:05.480 --> 00:57:08.159 to close your business or going to close your creative project and you do work 889 00:57:08.239 --> 00:57:10.960 for somebody else again for a little bit until you get the next idea. 890 00:57:12.119 --> 00:57:15.880 Like Yep, who cares? That's a part of the journey. Is Part 891 00:57:15.920 --> 00:57:21.320 of what we do, is entrepreneurs. So so it's good. The quote 892 00:57:21.400 --> 00:57:27.039 of the day. The quote of the day is Paradise as a perspective. 893 00:57:27.159 --> 00:57:30.440 Not a place. That's I'm ready to Buk. We eat that. Tweet 894 00:57:30.480 --> 00:57:36.159 it, Dude. That's like awesome paradise. That's what it is. Man's 895 00:57:36.159 --> 00:57:39.679 a perspective, not a place. Love it. Wow, really have five, 896 00:57:40.280 --> 00:57:44.400 so good at wait Vertui, fives, I got you. I got 897 00:57:44.400 --> 00:57:45.800 to do the Gamera. Yeah, I can't even.

That's a big responsibility. Well in Dude, 957 01:01:15.559 --> 01:01:22.559 I'm not going, but I am flying to Miami now for our dog. 958 01:01:22.679 --> 01:01:27.360 So Oh, that was another holes fiasco this morning. Like the anyway, 959 01:01:27.400 --> 01:01:30.159 I won't go into the whole story, but basically we'll try to up 960 01:01:30.239 --> 01:01:32.320 the show up, but it's a minute past atop the hour. Who cares 961 01:01:32.440 --> 01:01:37.639 like this? Cares about your stories. So like fifty hours, fifty hour 962 01:01:37.760 --> 01:01:40.599 live shape. So Anyway, I am I'm actually flying out of here on 963 01:01:40.639 --> 01:01:45.440 the twenty four late and then getting to Miami, getting my dog like Leven 964 01:01:45.519 --> 01:01:49.760 PM and then maybe driving some and then staying at air being B and then 965 01:01:49.800 --> 01:01:52.559 finishing the trip. But I will be going through Orlando because I'm going to 966 01:01:52.559 --> 01:01:57.480 Miami and then up the up the interstate that way. So I think that's 967 01:01:57.480 --> 01:02:00.119 going to be on the twenty five. So I might actually stop somewhere in 968 01:02:00.119 --> 01:02:04.840 North's see if I can see some people. That'd be fun. So I 969 01:02:04.880 --> 01:02:07.360 would actually ask you why are you doing that? Why aren't you going to 970 01:02:07.480 --> 01:02:10.719 Daytona, then to Jacksonville, then to Saveyanna? You going out of your 971 01:02:10.760 --> 01:02:16.559 way to go into Central Florida? But I don't wife and wife and son. 972 01:02:16.639 --> 01:02:20.679 Are you flying them all the way North Carolina? They're going to shut 973 01:02:20.760 --> 01:02:23.800 yeah, they're flying to Charlotte then driving. It's they're flying to Charlotte to 974 01:02:23.840 --> 01:02:29.679 find to get our well, good job, American Airlines for being doinks, 975 01:02:29.760 --> 01:02:34.000 because we were all flying to Charlotte, but the you can only fly a 976 01:02:34.039 --> 01:02:38.639 certain sized dog. It's a FA. So anyway, I'm I'm shipping him 977 01:02:38.679 --> 01:02:43.199 a different company, that having to fly. It's like the worst thing about 978 01:02:43.280 --> 01:02:46.400 moving with dogs. Like, after these dogs, I'm never getting dogs again. 979 01:02:46.920 --> 01:02:50.960 I'll go to the pet store and pet them on Saturdays and then those 980 01:02:51.000 --> 01:02:55.079 cages all lonely or the pound, but I'm not getting my own.

We're going 990 01:03:30.800 --> 01:03:35.000 to kind of go through his journey a little bit and maybe even talk about 991 01:03:35.039 --> 01:03:37.280 how do you overcome that imposter syndrome? Because some of you want to make 992 01:03:37.320 --> 01:03:40.199 big moves as a content creator. You want to go from your nine hundred 993 01:03:40.199 --> 01:03:44.599 and twenty five to just being a fulltime content creator, but you might have 994 01:03:44.639 --> 01:03:46.320 a little bit, little bit of Imposter Syndrome. So we're going to be 995 01:03:46.320 --> 01:03:51.800 talking about some of that. So join me Monday two PM, right here, 996 01:03:51.800 --> 01:03:53.519 and it's going to be a great week next week as it's my last 997 01:03:53.519 --> 01:03:57.960 week until June. So be sure to check out all those shows, put 998 01:03:58.000 --> 01:04:00.679 on your calendar and we'll see you then.
